The Chocolate Silk Pie Catastrophe

So truthfully, I've had to give up almost all sweets for some time now. And when I do eat them, I have to make them myself from healthy ingredients. Grain-free, sugar-free, etc.  And even then, I have to have only small amounts, 'cause anything sweet, even an apple, can make me a lil nauseous.

Disregarding all this, last Sunday I made a chocolate silk pie.  A healthy one, of course.  But still.  A chocolate silk pie is a chocolate silk pie, you know?

Anyways, as I was making it, I was like, 'Bethany, you've been so good, I think you deserve a treat', so I left lots of chocolate in the bowl for myself to lick out.  You know, like a kid would do.

I started feeling sick almost immediately, but I tried to ignore it.  Then Ben came and collected me and the pie to go to his parent's house for Sunday dinner.

After dinner, I wasn't feeling much better, but I had no intention of NOT having any of the pie I'd laboured over.  So I brought my plate over to where Ben was cutting it, and  I saw this: some very big, fat pieces of pie, and then some wimpy little small slivers of pie.

I took a big one.

I couldn't finish it. I was soo sick.  That is a big deal for those who know me. I am no lightweight when it comes to rich chocolate things!  But I guess my body just can't handle it any more.


So then I stood in the dark doorway of Gail's room and did hoedowns, after sternly telling no one to watch me.  Everyone did, of course.

May I say here, that I pretty much worship hoedowns. Every time my blood sugar is too high and I am suffering, all I have to do is five minutes of hoedowns and I feel amazing.  It's a miracle, pretty much.

So that's my story! Let it be a warning to all. (oh and this is not an endorsed post, fashioned in order to drive people in droves towards t-tapp and hoedowns! It is simply the truth.)
